Shahira’s journey to opening The Dirty Cookie began when she was just 10 years old while on vacation in Egypt. Noticing large amounts of homeless residents, she asked her dad for money to give to those living on the street. He obliged the request, but said to her, “If you really want to help them, give them jobs, not money.” This notion stayed with her. Now, in adulthood, she’s working to employ people throughout Orange County, CA via her very own food truck and catering company. Here, you can sample the ingenious confection that is the cookie shot.
What’s a cookie shot exactly? Glad you asked. It’s a shot glass made out of a cookie that you fill with milk, coffee, or really any drink you desire. Sip up your choice of beverage and then enjoy its edible container. The cookies Shahira whips up come in a variety of flavors, from chocolate chip to red velvet, and there are loads of gluten-free and vegan options. You can even get them custom made for an event. Imagine a bridal shower complete with cookie shots with the bride and groom’s initials written on ‘em with glaze, for example. Sound like a good time? Then book The Dirty Cookie for your next event. These unique and fun snacks are bound to bring a needed dose of joy to any get-together.
